New Colour Challenge - Ribbon Girl - Whimsy Winter Fairy

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are  having a lovely  weekend and perhaps enjoying some crafty time, it is certainly  a bit chillier now.

This morning we have a new colour challenge at Ribbon Girl and we would like to see your beautiful creations using 'Pastel Colours'.

I opted to make another Christmas card as I love making them. I have coloured up a Whimsy stamp called Winter Fairy with DI Re-inkers, the colours are listed below. I've sprinkled some glamour dust on her fur and for the lying snow and added some Star Dust stickles to her wings.  Along the left hand side I have cut my favourite ice crystal edge die and laid some separate ice crystals on top, finishing them off with a pearl which I've taken from a strand of 6mm White Pearl string. The ice crystals were cut in white card and I sprinkled some blue frantage over them to make the dusky blue colour. The roses and carnation have been sprinkled with twinklets which gives them a twinkly/frosty look. All the stunning embellishments are from Ribbon Girl links to the materials I have used are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product. 

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Coat and Boots: Weathered Wood
Gloves and Ear Muffs: Aged Mahogany, Spun Sugar
Wings: Weathered Wood, Aged Mahogany, Spun Sugar
Bird: Weathered Wood, Worn Lipstick
